Volunteer at Saint Ambrose
Thank you for your willingness to give of your time and talent to our parish community! Know that you are part of a large group of volunteers that give of their gifts in order to pass on our Catholic faith to the youth of our parish, by serving as a disciple of Christ. It is only through the generosity of our parish family that we are able to provide all the ministries and services that we do.
We appreciate your efforts to comply with diocesan requirements to insure the safety of children in our various programs. Protecting God’s Children is both a privilege and responsibility – which we all share. If many do a little, no one has to do a lot, and our programs will be most effective to meet the needs of the youth in our parish. If you have any questions please contact anyone listed below.
Know that your generosity and commitment is truly appreciated!
Before you begin:
We have devised a handy checklist that will guide you through the process. We ask that you please print it off (or pick up one at the Parish Life Center office). As you move through the required steps, kindly check off that step on the list.
Complete the Volunteer Steps
Verification of your attendance, if class not at St. Ambrose (certificate received at training session) must be delivered to Michele Sumner in the Parish Life Center office after completion of the training.
Once you have completed the VIRTUS Training, you will receive monthly email notices to read a bulletin from VIRTUS. These are very brief articles which require answering only one question. A record of your ongoing progress will be kept on the website for diocesan records. All VIRTUS-trained volunteers must be current with the online training bulletins.
If you have already taken the class, but have not registered, please do so immediately. All past and future classes will be visible once you have registered on-line. This ensures the diocese knows you have fulfilled your requirements. Be certain to list St. Ambrose Parish as your primary location when registering.

- Location: St. Ambrose School (if volunteering at the day school), St. Ambrose (if volunteering for PSR). It is possible to select both locations.
